The New York Times once described Joan Jett as “the godmother to female musicians with loud guitars and idealistic dreams.” Nearly four decades into her career, the ever-youthful Jett remains an inspiration for any girl–or guy–armed with three chords and a passion for rock and roll. Jett’s latest release, Unvarnished, ranks among her very best. In the comments below, she shares her thoughts about her favorite albums.
1) The Rolling Stones: Let It Bleed
“Pure organic sound, and attitude with great hooks.”
2) Sex Pistols: Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols
“The greatest punk recording ever.”
